In Puglia each village is an unmissable place. The cities of the region are a concentration of beauty and history.

The artistic value of the Apulian localities shines through as soon as you arrive in its splendid places. The landscapes that can be admired are ideal for those who want to take a journey of beauty and relaxation. In the city of Brindisi all these elements can be found. The splendid location is in fact a concentration of history, art, traditions and nature.

If you have little time to visit it, you need to know the unmissable places.

The historic center of Ostuni, defined by its inhabitants as "The Earth", was once completely painted with white lime, which today has only partially remained. The houses climb the steep sides of a hill and the village is characterized by a tangle of winding streets, a succession of squares, alleys and courtyards.

Along the 17 kilometers of coastline of the Ostuni area, in a wonderful play of colors, there are long beaches with dunes covered by Mediterranean scrub and an alternation of sandy coves and rocky coast. The coast today represents one of the major seaside tourist attractions in Puglia.

Transparent sea and Posidonia meadows lap Torre Guaceto, in the territory of Carovigno, a beach awarded with the 3 Sails of Legambiente.

The heart of the Torre Guaceto Marine Protected Area preserves a naturalistic Eden characterized by a low and sandy coast bordered by dunes and interrupted, from time to time, by rocks.

We let ourselves be conquered by the succession of coves of fine sand free or equipped. The jewel in the crown is the shell beach made up of tiny white shells and inserted in zone A with full protection with a ban on bathing.

We start to discover the reserve with bike trekking and underwater excursions or sailing on the turquoise waters thanks to the presence of a sailing center that offers catamaran, sailing and windsurfing courses.

Lecce is mainly a Baroque city, which here is expressed as never in any other city, exploding in a very particular and specific declination, to the point of deserving the nickname of Lecce Baroque. Bright decorations that enrich the coatings of the buildings, the intense colors of the Lecce stone: a soft and compact limestone, with warm and golden colors that lends itself very well to working with the stonemason.

Baroque art spread to Lecce in the seventeenth century, during the Spanish domination, replacing classical art and creating a style that left room for fantasy and imagination. The historic center is full of examples of the processing of this stone in monuments, churches but also balconies and terraces of private homes.

But it is not only the Baroque that characterizes Lecce: hospitable, tidy, with great gastronomy and an exceptional sea just a few steps away, it is one of the unmissable destinations to visit in Italy.
